Gannon Gives Ten Dollars Again to Tobacco Fund The Our Boj*s in France Tobacco Fund has been enriched by ten dollars more, the contribution of County Clerk Bernard M. Gannon of this city, who has made two gifts of similar amounts when the appeal for money for smokes was sent out last year. Owing to the thousands of American boys who are being sent to France each week there is more need now Tor money with which to purchase smokes for them than ever before. The cigarette and pipe have proven themselves the true friend of the Sam mie "over there" and it is the duty of those remaining· behind with the comforts of home at their disposal to "conic across" in order that the boys who are staking their all may have some means of enjoying their few spare hours. Funds similar to the "Our Boys in France" fund are being rained in prac tically every city in the country and Perth Amboy wishes to be well up on the list of places backing the boys with smokes. To date Perth Arnbov ha.s been generous in this respect but. more and more is needed daily in or der to supply the steadily Increasing army of young Americans who are landing on French soil and taking their placés alongside of the Allies in the trenches.

"OVER THE TOP" BY ARTHUR GUY EMPtY ^ .^rvritrlj; 1H17 by Arthur Guy 1?τηη<·ν ΑΠργ covering my sector I quiet!;· crawled back. 1 hud gotten about half way when I noticed that my revolver was inlsslug. It was pitch dark. I turned about to see if I ronld find it; It couldn't be far away, because about i three or four minutes previously I had j felt the butt in the holster. I crawled ! around in circles and at last found It ι then started on lnv way back to our ι trenches, as I thought. I Pretty soon I reached barbed wire, and was Just going: to give the pass word when something told me not to. I put out my hand and touched one of the barbed wire stakes. It was iron. I The British are of wood, while the Oerraan are iron. My heart stopped beating ; by mistake I had crawled back to the Gorman lines. I turned slowly about and my tunic caught ou the wire and made a loud ripping noise. A sharp challenge rang out. I sprang to my feet, ducking low, and ran madly back townrd our lines. The Germans started firing. The bullets were biting all around me, when bang! I ran smash into our wire, and a sharp Challenge, "'Alt, who comes thereT" rang out. I gasped out the password, and, groping my way through the lane In the wire, tearing tuy hands and uniform, I tumbled into our trench and was safe, but 1 was a nervous wreck for an hour, until a diink of rum brought rue round. CHAPTER XVIII. Staged Under Fire. Three days after the incident Just re lated our company was relieved from tie front line and carried. We stayed in reserve billets for about two weeks when we received the welcome news that our division would go back of the line "to rest billets." We would re main In these billets for at least two months, this in order to be restored to our full strength by drafts of recruits from Blighty. Everyone was happy and contented at these tidings; all you could hear aronnd the billets was whistling and singing. The day after the receipt of the order we hiked for five days, mak ing an average of about twelve kilos per day until we arrived at the small town of O' . It took us about three days to get settled, aad from then on our cushy time started. We would parade from 8:45 In the morning until 32 uoon. Then except for an occasional billet or brigade guard we were on our own. For the first four or five afternoons I spent my time In bringing up to date my neglected correspondence. Tommy loves to be amused, and be ing a Yank, they turned to me for j something new lu this line. I taught j thein how to pitch horseshoes, and this I game made a great hit for about ten days. Then Tommy turned to Amer ica for a new diversion. I was up In the air until a happy thought came to me. Why not write a sketch and break Tommy In as an actor? One evening after "lights out," when you are not supposed to talk, I impart ed my scheme In whispers to the sec tion. They eagerly accepted the Idee of forming a stock company and could hardly wait until the morning for further details. After parade, the next afternoon I was almost mobbed. Everyone In the section wanted η part In the proposed sketch. When I Informed them that it would take at least ten days of hard work to write the plot, they were bit terly disappointed. I immediately got busy, made a desk out of biscuit tins In the corner of the billet, and put up β sign 'Empey & Wallace Theatrical Co." About twenty of the section, upon reading this algn, immediately applied for the position of office boy. Τ accepted the twenty applicants, and sont them on scouting pnrtlcs through out the deserted French village. These parties were to search all the attics for discarded civilian clothes, and any thing that we could use In the props of our proposed company. About five that night they returned covered with grime and dust, but load ed down with a miscellaneous assort ment of everything under the sun. They must hnve thought that I was going to start a department store, Judging from the different things they brought back from their pillage. After eight days' constant writing I completed a two-act farce comedy which I called "The Diamond Palace Saloon." Upon the suggestion of one of the boys In the section I sent a proof of the program to a printing house In London. Then I assigned the different parts and started rehearelng. David Belasco would have thrown up his hands in despair at the material which I had to use. Just Imagine trying to teach a Tommy, with a strong cockney accent, to Impersonate a Bowery tough or a Southern negro. Adjacent to our billet was an open field. We got busy at one end of it and constructed a stage. We secured the lumber far the stage by demolishing an old wooden shack In the rear of Mr bUiet. The first scene was supposed to rep osent a street on the Bowery in New I York, while the scene of the second , act was the Interior of the Diamond ! Palace saltan, also on the Bowery, j III the play I look the part of Abe Switch, u fiirmer, who had come from Purupklnvilie Center, Tenu., to make his first visit to New York. j In the first scene Abe Switch meets the proprietor of the Diamond Pa luce saloon, a ramshackle nIT&lr which to ^ the owner was a financial loss. The proprietor's name was Tom Twlgtem, his bartender being named Plllem Up. After meeting Abe. Tom and Fillem Up persuaded him to buy the place, praising it to the skies ami telling wondrous tales of the money taken over the bar. While they are talking, an old Jew named Ikey Cohenstelu comes along, and Abe engages him for cashier. After engaging Ikey they meet an old Southern negro called Sambo, and upon the suggestion of Ikey he Is en» gaged as porter. Then the three of \ them, arm In arm, leave to take pos session of this wonderful palace which Abe has just paid $0,000 for. (Cur tain.) In the second act the cnrtain rises on the interior of the Diamond Palace saloon, and the audience gets its first shock. The saloon looks like a pig pen, two tramps lying drunk on the floor, and the bartender in a dirty shirt with his sleeves rolled up, asleep with his head on the bar. Enter Abe, Sambo and Ikey, and the fun commences. One of the characters In the second act was named Broadway Kate, and I had an awful Job to break in one of the Tommies to net and talk like a woman. Another character was Alkali Ike, an Arizona cowboy, who Just before the close of the play comes into the saloon and wrecks it with his revolver. We had eleven three-hour rehearsals before I thought It advisable to pre sent the sketch to the public. Th· whole brigade was craey to witness the first performance. This performance was scheduled for Friday night and everyone was full of antici pation; when bang! orders came through that the brigade would move at two that afternoon. Cursing and blinding was the order of things upon the receipt of this order, but we moved. That night we reached the little vil lage of S and again went Into rest billets. We were to be there two weeks. Our company Immediately got husy and scoured the village for α suitable place In which to present our production. Then we received another shock. A rival company was already estab lished in the village. They called themselves "The Bow Bells," and put on a sketch entitled, "Blighty— What Hopes?" They were the divi sional concert party. We hoped they all would be w>od in Blighty to give us a chance. This compauy charged an admission of a franc per head, and that nlgfet our company went en masse to sea their pcrforitUince. It really was good. In one of their scracs they had a soubrette called Flossie. The soldier that took this part was clever and miide α fine-appearing and chic girl. We Immediately fell In love with her until two days after, while we were on u march, we passed Flossie with "her" sleeves rolled up and the sweat pouring from "her" face unloading shells from a motor lorry. As our section passed her I yelled out: "Hello, Flossie; Blighty—What Hopes?" Her reply made our love die oat Instantly. "Ah. go to h—1!" This brought quite a laugh from the marching column directed at me, nnd I Instantly made up my mind that our sketch should immediately run In op position to "Blighty—What Hopes?" When we returned to our billet from the march, Curley Wallace, my the atrical partner, came running over to ' me and said he had found a ewanky place In which to produce our chow. After taking off my equipment, and followed by the rest of the section, I went over to the building he had picked out. It was a monstrous barn with a platform at one end which would make an ideal stage. The section get right on the job, and before night had that place rigged out in «ppJo-ple order. The next day was Sunday and after church parade we put all our time on a dress rehearsal, nnd It went fin» I made foer or five large eigne an nouncing that our company would open up that evening at the King George the Fifth theater, on the corner of AoAno street and Sundbag terrace. OeiMai admission was one-half franc. First ten rows in orchestra one franc?, and boxes two francs. By this time «ur printed programs had returned ft6m London, and I further announced that on the night of the first performance a program would be given free of charge te nan holding tickets CMtlag · franc or over. I tTe *· CMttvMt.1 Preparing the "Chow." Now at 210 SMITH STREET Corner of Maple Street 11 FOUR PER CENT INTEREST PAID City Honor Roll Arrives; to be Hung in City Hall "Perth Am boy's gift to the Nation for the preservation of democracy in the world's war 1917," is the quota tion over the top of the huge honor roll, which will be exhibited in the city hall, the first section of which has already arrived with more to fol ! low. The roll is arranged on a black back ground, the names being· in white, ad justable letters, which may be ar ranged at will. It is understood that the roll will be placed on the north wall of the council chamber directly over the rostrum. Ferth Amboy takes just pride in the men who have left this city for the front, both those who enlisted and those called for sen-ice in the Na tional Army, and the honor roll will be one of the show places of the city, where strangers will be shown what this city has done, and the sacrifices made to do its share in winning the war for democracy. The names are placed on the roll in two sections, the first being- those who ai-e in the army and directly under this list the names of those in the navy.
